With the fourth season of “Kompani Lauritzen” currently rolling on Norwegian screens, another group of green-clad celebrities can be seen on TV.

– Vulnerable situation


The military reality quickly became an audience hit when it premiered in 2020, and season four was no exception with sky-high numbers in the season premiere.

As before, the company activists are in the recruitment period at the Sednesmon camp in Andalsnes, as reported to Dagbladet, without “Dear Mother” – even if the cameras are turned off.

– it is absolutly true

Participants have previously said that Thalapathy continues his strict regime when the cameras aren’t rolling, and that it lasts 24 hours a day.

There must have been talk among the participants that this was a requirement of TV 2’s commander in order for them to be part of the reality series – they had to be in their regular jobs even when the cameras were there. Not currently.

One of this year’s participants, the TV profile Gründe Maihrer (27), can confirm this in a TikTok video created with the training profile of Casper Ghello.

– This is absolutely true. It’s not like we’re chatting with the commander, Maiher can be heard saying in the video.

He was surprised to see the cameras

Another of this year’s participants, actor and writer Eben Akerley, 35, expressed his frustration with the cameras to Talkblade. Always was present

– From the time you wake up to the time you go to bed! It felt like we were constantly being filmed. They also participated in our holidays, even though we never had a day off, Agerly said.

The 35-year-old can admit that he struggled at the end because he wasn’t prepared for how much the cameras would actually film.

– I was afraid a lot, but I did not imagine that it would be a big problem. But then I was very uncomfortable with it. It took a long time to truly accept it. Then get used to it. It was very penetrating.

Really hard

Espen PA Lervaag (45), who took part in season three, previously told Dagbladet that the participation was more difficult than it appeared on screen.

– Having done so much TV, I was surprised that there were no breaks – ever. I imagined there would at least be a catering table with coffee and nuts. But it wasn’t, Lervaag added:

– I am very disappointed when I watch it on TV. Bystanders don’t know how far we’ve come to where we are. I remember we carried a log. “We wore it for hours, but the screen ended in a minute or so,” he continued.

Cut sharply

Not surprisingly, it’s actually harder than it looks on TV. According to Jan Peter Dahl, TV2’s press manager, around 80 hours of footage are shot each shooting day. Only 66 minutes of this are included in the episodes shown on TV.

– This means that there are many stories and events that we do not have time to tell. Plus, Dahl explains to TalkBlade about what’s going on that wasn’t filmed.

Additionally, to make the experience as realistic as possible for the participants, the camera crew is all dressed in military uniforms.

Showers must be shared

At the Setnesmoen camp, there was no discrimination, so the enthusiasts had to share the shower with their fellow participants.

– Rain is very funny in “Kompanie Lauridsen”. There were only curtains between us – boys and girls. Bad shower curtains and four in a row! For example, it was always good when Reuben got rained on because the song was in the shower, no matter what, third-season contestant Dawn Tomley, 34, told Talkblade.

Also from the same season, influencer Emily Wo Nereng (27) has no problem sharing the shower with the boys.

– No, I loved it! The acoustics in the room were amazing, and the acoustics and Reuben singing – it was beautiful to listen to. I still miss it.
